Memorial Day Weekend

You probably don't want to know just how long I have been working on getting these pictures up. Not a few hours or a few days but about a week and a half. They are from Memorial Day and well that was almost 2 weeks ago now. It seems our summer has kicked off to a rip roarin start. We are traveling four weekends in a row. Crazy I know! The packing and unpacking is a little ridiculous. Not too mention a business trip has been involved in this too. Unfortunately stay-at-home moms don't have business trips so I get to stay home, imagine that. But some how I was still involved in the packing.

Oh, I digress....

The first of our four weekends away was Memorial Day weekend. We were traveling fools putting in over 800 miles, hitting both grandparents, a picnic, a 6-seater bike ride, a Twins game, a train ride, a zoo, Chipotle (totally worth the 800 miles) and Dinos Gyros (again, totally worth the 800 miles). Here are some lots of pictures from our fun weekend.

We rented a six seater bike to drive around the park with grandma and papa Cameron. The boys were pretty excited. We did this once before about 2 years ago. Let's see if I can find a picture.....

My how they have grown! Carson has the same look on his face...some things never change. I didn't get a very good video of our bike adventure this year. But you can check out the fun video from 2 years ago here.

Carson likes to play shy for the camera. Declan on the other hand.....

he's a little ham.

I could use a bike like this all the time. So much fun.

My goal this summer is to get a decent picture of the boys, together, in this outfit. From the looks of things that might be easier said then done.

It seems Carson and Declan's favorite thing to do this summer is pick dandelions. Last weekend we were in the car and we passed a big field full of them and Carson said, "Look at all those dandelions mommy, I wouldn't know where to begin."

We took the light rail train into downtown Minneapolis for the Twins game. The boys thought that was the neatest thing we could have done.

At the game all the kids got wooden bats. We are know the proud owners of 2 wooden bats that are bigger then they are.

Look! Papa Cameron even played in the game. It seems he got a really dark tan though. ;-)

We didn't get back from the game until 11:30. The boys don't normally sleep in the same bed. In fact, they never have. But it seems when they are uterrly exhausted there is no time for goofing around and they pass out. I'm not even joking when I say they both were asleep in less then 3 minutes.

And they stayed that way until long after the sun was up.

Off to Como Zoo.

We love Como Zoo. It's free and it's perfect size. It's been awhile since we've been there though.....

Seems the last time was 3 years ago on Carson's first birthday.

And they are still trying to catch up on sleep from the past few weeks.
